a peek inside...

I received an email last week after the Pagoda 13 post.  The reader said she loved looking at rooms in people's homes but what she'd really like to see is what is inside their cabinets and drawers.  Ha, thought that was pretty honest and quite funny.  I have no problem showing you inside just about any cabinet or drawer.  I do not embarrass easily, also known as having no real shame.  I showed you my linen closet after all.  There are only 3 drawers in my vanity and I fear they are a bit underwhelming but she asked so I oblige.  I did not take anything out or add anything.  I just opened them up and took a snap.  These are unedited.

Top drawerRollers - that bin is usually full but the rest were in my head at the time I snapped the photo.  Make-up - I don't wear very much and not very often (much to my Sephora loving daughter's dismay).  I need it mind you, I just don't usually care that much anymore.  Hagville here I come.
Face stuff - the please make my poor old dry skin look younger, glow and unwrinkle magic creams.


Middle drawer - Blow dryer which I don't use.  Small Talk and Hair Spray which I use all the time.  I would have to shave my head if I didn't have hair spray.  I'm completely serious, it would look better.  Some misc. hair stuff and something that is promising me short sexy hair.  I already have short (really short) hair so it must just be promising me sexy.  I'm typing this in my rollers with toast crumbs on my face so I'm thinking about asking for a refund.


Bottom drawer - This is the misc. but mostly nail care stuff.  I was going to say it's quite boring but see that black blob in the middle?  Ha ha ha.  Those are ear muff things which I didn't even know were in there.  You are probably wondering what they are doing in my vanity drawer.  I can't tell you because I have no idea.  You might also be asking yourself why a girl who lives in Phoenix needs ear muff warmer things.  I travel.  I get cold.  I don't like to get cold.  Again, why are they in my bathroom vanity???????  I'm so weird.


Do you peek in cupboards?  Would you give us a peek in yours?

Shows you're such a simple gal at heart - love it!
No, I don't peek in cabinets - but would gladly show you mine. I don't embarrass easily either. I think having children gets you over that (and over yourself) REALLY quickly :-D

I love when people show you their cabinets but I would never sneak a peek as a guest in someone's home. Not as an adult anyway. I used to do this as a teenager at my friends houses. Their moms used fancy stuff from the department store.

I have a rediculous amount of product in a tiny rental bathroom. Seriously rediculous. It's completely out of control. Not sure if I want to let anyone see this level of madness. ;)

I often find random things in random places in my house but it's usually when it's messy. I love that the earmuffs are neatly tucked away and you don't remember doing it. :)

My cupboards are all really orgainised and tidy, with the exception of my shoe closet where all shoes are hurled in despite my obsessional personality.
Here's another challenge and that's your purse contents!
Did this one a while back, with words not pics. Just showed how bonkers I am!

How beautifully organized, Jeanette!
My cupboard is unfortunately not that organized all the time, keep telling myself it's most because of my four little monkeys ;)
Have a lovely Wednesday!Xxxxx

KC said...

What a great idea! I love looking in the drawers!! Let's do this with all the rooms people post. Though I notice people usually just post stuff out of magazines, not their own rooms. Boring. I like seeing things I didn't already see and in the cabinets is so fun!!!!!!!!!!

Teenage Bride said...

"Hagville here I come" HAHAHAHA Jeanette you never fail to make me chuckle.

I would certainly show you the inside of cupboards HOWEVER things will fall out, so stand clear haha

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

I'm afraid my cabinets are not for public display, for the good of all concerned!! hahah

MJM said...

I'm not sure I'm quite ready for that... I am not so organized as my mom...

Everton Terrace said...

I wasn't always this way either and I have a ways to go. There is always my office....someday it will look like the rest of the house, oh and the closet in the gym - I have no idea what is even in there!

For the most part I could show cupboards and cabinets, most are fairly well organised making it so much easier to find things.
When I was young I loved nothing more than to 'investigate' at my friends' homes. One friend's parents in particular had the most interesting things stuffed (and I mean stuffed!) into the drawers and cupboards of a sideboard! With her permission I would sit on the floor and rummage to my heart's content.
As a grownup I no longer have that curiosity, I have a feeling my daughter will disagree with the curiosity bit but as far as other people's drawers and cupboards are concerned it's true.

Everton Terrace said...

You daughter does disagree with gusto! I've never seen a box, bag or corner of things you weren't dying to rummage through.

Andrea said...

I love this! It shows that you are not afraid to show something as personal as this. I might do it, but I couldnt promise that I wouldnt make a few minor adjustments. I liked this post alot, and you are so organized!

I'm not letting you and your camera into my garage...

Everton Terrace said...

but you're not home....

pamela said...

love the organization. someday! my own admission: i used to love to look in cabinets when i babysat! just fun to see what other people have to eat.

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

hum- so I knew we had a lot in common but the fact that we organize our three bathroom drawers similarly is uncanny.

I don't wear makeup really- SOMETIME if photos will be taken I will add some powder- and curl my lashes.
SO the only difference is my 'hair' drawer is bottom-

OneCraftyFox said...

I don't peak in cabinets, but if anyone ever peaked in mine they would not find much, lol!

I have a little vanity set up in my spare bedroom where I do my makeup and hair, so really the only items anyone would find in my bathroom cabinet are a first aid kit, cleaning supplies, and spare bottles of shampoo and conditioner :)

Leah said...

You are organized and tidy! A girl after my own heart! You can peek in mine anytime!

Luvs!

rockinj9designs said...

do I peek into cupboards-no (unless they have glass doors) Would I allow you into mine-absolutely.

Stacey said...

I envy your organization. I always strive to have tidy and organized drawers but never seem to be able to keep them that way! xx

the chirpy bird said...

Oh my.... I don't know if you would want to see in my cupboards! It's more of an organized chaos situation! But thanks for inspiring me to clean up my act! I'm sure my boyfriend would appreciate it!

shari @ little blue deer said...

I'm the same as you, Jeanette, keep my beauty supplies in little baskets! Also, keep my jewelry in teacups! XX!

koralee said...

Everything is so neat and organzined my friend...thanks for sharing. xoxo

Molly said...

I am amazed that these shots are unedited... you're so organized and tidy. Very impressive.

Cashon&Co said...

your drawers are soooo very organized! i'm impressed. really.
i just cleaned mine out last week. i feel soo much better now. it is hard to have a clear head when your stuff is unorganized at home.

La Dolfina said...

I love to see how people organize their stuff, especially the bathroom variety. I would show you mine. It's usually pretty organized because I'm a Virgo but it does get out of order once in a while and when I re-organize it I usually come up with a little bit better system each time.
I also like to find cool things to store stuff in. I'm feeling a post coming on about organizing thanks to you!!
